I know, I know, I just gave you a life update at the end of August. But things have been so busy, so it’s time for another one I think.
I couldn’t believe it when I checked my last post and saw that it was from almost a month ago! Like my last hiatus, I have still been reading, but my pace has definitely slowed down and I just haven’t been able to pump out the reviews. I had a great little boost at the beginning of October and I was so optimistic that I was finally going to get back in the swing of things, but then me and my husband bought our very first home! We live in Vancouver and it’s a pretty hot market up here. Home ownership has been a dream of ours for years, but it’s so expensive to buy into the market. But after 6 years of saving and some government intervention, housing finally took a drop over the last year and we grabbed the chance to buy in.
So that has been taking over my life since the beginning of October, but of course, it’s a very exciting change, so I just went with it. I’ve been momentarily re-inspired with the release of the Goodreads Choice Awards nominees, and I wrote a ton of reviews last night, so I’m planning to just post them over the next few weeks while we’re still busy with moving. I’d like to say things will probably go back to normal after that, but they won’t because less than 2 weeks after moving to our new house, we’re packing our bags and heading off on our honeymoon!
We decided to really go all out for the honeymoon, and since we’re going over Christmas, we decided to cross a big one off the bucket list and are heading to New Zealand for 5 weeks through December and January. I’m not planning to read a whole lot on the trip, but we are going to be driving over 3,500km on our road trip, so I’m hoping to knock out a few audiobooks along the way! I have a second adventure blog where I post about all my travels and outdoor trips, so if you’re interested, I will be blogging from that account. It’s called The Road Goes Ever On, inspired, obviously, by my love of Tolkien.
So you can likely expect of boost of posts over the next few weeks, and then another drought through Christmas. But that’s life for you! Fortunately it’s been all good things taking up my time and I am really looking forward to the next few months of adventures!
